Question about Kenmore 84052 Dryer
Last weekend I posed the following question and got excellent advice:
My 2006 Kenmore electric dryer stopped running. We checked the plug and the breakers and don't see the problem. The codes on it are DWJR-ELE-2406028-FM54; 110.66652500. We can't find the owners manual. Any advice is appreciated! WE bought a new thermal sensor and now the dryer works, except it doesn't turn off when on the timed dry cycle. So the timer does count down from 40 min to 30 min etc down to 0 but then it just keeps running until we open the door. Can you provide a troubleshooting suggestion? Thanks in advance
Hi there. this is a timer issue. it counts down but, the actual shut off dial embedded in the timer mechanism is damaged for some reason. replacing the timer assembly will correct this issue. there are two parts to a timer. One, it times and last, it initiates the shutoff. the second action is not working properly. to be sure, check the relay before you purchase the new timer.
I have also provided you with a complete manual set that you can access and print out if you would like.

if you take the back off of your dryer and look for a little white thermo fuse with 2 wires on it if you unhook the wires and plug them together than start the dryer if it starts shut it off and replace the fuse and clean your venting

Assuming that the fuses you speak of are the external pair, and not the internal motor or timer resets:
Check the fuse holder for corrosion on the plates. Often the fuse is not properly seated because of this build-up and therefore has an intermittent connection. This will cause the fuse to either heat up, or overload; ultimately failing.
To remedy this, turn OFF the breaker, or main switch if necessary, and fix a wooden dowel with a piece of emery cloth (or sand paper) on the end. Remove any visible black corrosion from the contact plates.
Finish with a spray of WD40 to protect the plates and fuse end.
Replace the fuse, ensuring that it's tight, reinstate power and try again.

Yes it is fairly easy to replace from the back. First verify it is the element and not the thermal fuse or a loss of one leg of the 240VAC circuit.

Make sure that the problem is not a broken belt, or a belt that has slipped off of the motor pulley or idle arm pulley.
Look to see if the motor is running first, sometimes you cannot hear the motor running but it is.
Also you can check your breakers to see if one is kicked out.
This problem can also be caused by a faulty start switch.
If this is not the problem than it may be time to call the repairman
